How the new care home could look.

The Department of Health and Social Care is seeking planning permission to build a 60-bed care home for older people.

The facility would be located at the site of the former Glenside Resource Centre at the corner of Victoria Road and Glencrutchery Road in Douglas.

The unit, which has provisionally been called Summer Hill View, would also offer day services.

If approved, the new centre will replace the Reayrt ny Baie Resource Centre at Albert Terrace, which no longer meets regulatory standards, and the Sweetbriar Dementia Care Unit in Farmhill.

The DHSC will seek approval for funding for the project from Tynwald later this year once the planning process is complete.
